MySQL Connector/Python currently not available from PyPI

With PEP 470 now requiring files to be hosted on PyPI, you may have noticed that MySQL Connector/Python is now no longer available using the pip-tool.

The MySQL Engineering team at Oracle really would like to have the connector available through PyPI and have been talking with the Python Foundation towards that. We know users and developers of OpenStack, for example, have requested this as well as lots of other Python users.

For now we suggest to download the latest Connector/Python directly from the MySQL homepage:

Going forward we will eagerly continue to work with the Python Foundation to make Connector/Python available again through PyPI.
